Question about BMW X5 Series

Open Question

I have a 4.8is x5 2005. When I drive at a constant speed from 60km/h to 80, there some jerking comes, and if I turn the steering wheel all the way while pushing the break pedal and the gear is on d or r there comes a very big terrible jerking.Both of these problems disappear if I only unplug the air mass sensor and replug it again.Couple of hours later on, they appear again.I tried with tow new sensors, but they were useless.

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

SOURCE: Changed Mass Air Flow sensor, CEL still displays problem

it almost sounds like a fouled fuel injector. this is a tricky problem because it involve so many different operations. the maf is used to deliver fuel and the o2 sensor tells how much. there are 2 o2 sensors one before cat 1 after. mabey check these out visually. the computer should pick these sensors up if there bad. is this a supercharged engine? ill try to come up with some other ideas for you soon.

could be two things, 1; the coil is going bad. 2; the electronic egr valve has a piece of carbon in it. the latter is probably the problem. to fix this , just remove the valve, push on the piston and while holding it in the open position, spray with carb cleaner and blow it out, release the piston and be sure the valve is closing all the way. if the gasket is damaged you can get a new one at the parts store.

You shouldn't be going that fast in 4WD . Look at all the universal joints on the drive shaft. Also look at all the rubber bushings on the suspension cross arms and sway bar.

steering problems at speed is attributable to incorrect wheel alignment from worn suspension and steering assemblies. Have the front end checked out and have a wheel alignment done as it is most likely a castor wobble ( negative castor angle from sagged springs )

2000 Toyota Corolla showing P/S on dash board then difficult steering wheel and then the speed only up to 60km/h

check if your power steering is belt controlled or electronic controlled.check If is belt controlled the see whether the belt still on the pulley not went off. If is electronic controlled then the motor might be the fault or the angle sensor is not working etc. Ask a qualified electrician to help. As regards the speed 60km/h is like safe mode comes on and allowed you to drive it slowly to the garage for repair.
